Charlotte E. Mezera, age 83, of Janesville, passed away with her family at her side, on Tuesday, December 8, 2020 in Milton at the home of her daughter and son-in-law. She was born August 8, 1937 in Manitowoc, WI to the late Gerhardt F. and Elfrieda A. (Fischer) Sickinger. Charlotte graduated from Valders High School. Charlotte married Richard Theisen in 1957. After Richard's untimely death in 1966, she met and fell in love with Eugene Mezera. They married in 1971 in Appleton, WI and moved to Janesville, where she worked in Human Resources at Mercy Hospital for 20 years before retiring.
Charlotte was a long time and active member of St. William Catholic Church, where she volunteered for Meals on Wheels and funeral luncheons. She also volunteered for the breakfast club at Washington School. Charlotte enjoyed gardening and travel, among many other things, but most of all, she was unfailingly devoted to her family.
